Recipe: Marinated Flank Steak

Tuesdays are dedicated to Single Living Skills. We'll talk about everything from car care to the kitchen sink, to recipes, dating, etc. Help out other widows by sending in your favorite single-living recipes to: wcplace@gmail.com
Today's recipe comes from Kelly in Arizona, and it's perfect for summertime grilling!

Marinated Flank Steak

1 small red onion, quartered
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 pounds flank steak
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

Sliver one-quarter of the onion and set aside. Chop the rest of the onion. Mix it in a bowl with the vinegar, oregano, and garlic. Combine 1/4 cup of this mixture with the slivered onions and set aside.

Sprinkle both sides of the steak with the salt and pepper; prick well with a fork. In a large zip-top food-storage bag, combine the steak with the remaining onion mixture. Marinate for 1 hour or overnight.

Heat the grill or the broiler, positioning the oven broiler rack so that the meat on the rack in the pan is 4 inches from the heat source. Remove the meat from the marinade, and place on the grill over direct heat or on an oven rack set in the broiler pan. Discard the marinade. Grill or broil for 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let stand for 5-10 minutes before slicing.
Place the meat on a platter and pour the reserved onion mixture over the steak. Enjoy!

  1. Yummy!! My 16 year old INHALES this steak... flank steak can no longer be called "cheap", but it is less expensive per serving than getting a steak for each person.

    This is also great on salads, especially if you grill it to medium-rare.

    Thanks for posting, Ferree!

  2. I'll bet this will make a nice "welcome back" for my 19 year old after he's tried almost a year of apartment living with the guys. thanks for sharing it Kelly!
